Gift Guide Holiday 2017

Holiday Gift Guide: The Nordstrom Edit

December 1, 2017

This season is literally the most wonderful time of the year. Not only because it’s the Holidays and we get to enjoy grandma’s cooking, but this is also the season when beauty brands come out with some of their best value sets and limited edition collections. Nordstrom is one of my top places to shop for just about anything, especially for Christmas. Free shipping, easy returns, fast delivery, in-store and curb-side pickup service, stylists and specialists one click or call away, and of course, their ease-of-access website stocked full of goodies ready to be shopped. They literally are the perfect one-stop shop – I’m just waiting on them to put in a grocery aisle and tire center. Recently they rolled out their gift guides filled with gifts and ideas for just about everyone on your shopping list, from the techie and hostess with the mostess to the workout devoted and everyone in between. Of course I have been making a list and checking it twice myself, and along the way came upon their beauty section to uncover some fabulous picks!

  • 1. Impressions Vanity Co. Touch Pro LED Makeup Mirror with Bluetooth Audio & Speakerphone ($145) – is a makeup mirror that I have been completely obsessing over. This is a Bluetooth-enabled vanity mirror that lets you listen to your favorite tunes while you get ready. All wireless. Perfect for following along with makeup tutorial audio and you can use the front-facing mic to make hands-free calls. Featuring ultra-bright daylight LED lights providing true color and adjust via a smart touch sensor, it also swivels and tilts 360 degrees. This mirror is everything.
  • 2. Tiffany & Co. Eau de Parfum ($75 – $130) – is a brand new fragrance introduced by the famous House of Tiffany’s.

  • 19. Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette ($62) – I reviewed in this post a while ago. This is honestly one of the best highlighter palettes I own and I suspect anyone who loves an intense glow will absolutely adore this as a gift. For more details and swatches, link right here.

  • 21. Herbivore Botanicals Coco Set ($42) – is an amazing deal considering the set includes two full-size products. I love anything by Herbivore, and if you want to read up on some more details about aforementioned products, I posted a review a while ago linked right here.
  • 22. Dior Couture Colour Wardrobe Eye & Lip Palette ($89) – directly inspired by runway shows, this versatile Dior palette carries essentials for both the eyes and lips  so you can create countless custom makeup looks to suit any moment, day or night.
  • 23. Clinique Sonic Celebration Set ($89.50) – is rather the perfect universal skincare gift. Even though skincare is highly personal, a cleansing set strikes a really good balance since everyone has to wash their face at the end of the night. Even if they don’t like the cleanser itself, at least the Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush would get some use. The Clinique Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush is a dermatologist-developed sonic brush that offers deep yet gentle cleansing for skin that glows. It features two bristle types for targeted cleansing in hard-to-reach, contoured areas of the face where dirt hides, as well as an angled tip that purifies pores and thoroughly cleanses your T-zone.

That wraps up my Nordstrom Edit gift guide. I hope you found this curated selection helpful to shop for any friends or family that are somewhat into beauty, or a lot. I find beauty gifts, whether that be a bath & body set or a pair of lavender-infused socks, the best type of gifts if you’re stumped what to get a certain someone. Anyone can appreciate something they can pamper themselves with.
